Hey guys. Camping wasn’t great, but I survived. I’m reading Jane Eyre, 450 pages, right now, which is why you haven’t heard from me since before the trip. Sorry! I promise to be up and running as soon as I can put down the book for like a second. My literature class is very interesting to say the least. Here’s an old art piece to console you. “Puppy” from 2011 I believe. Talk to you soon.
Trying something new
Faces are hard, right? For some people, at least. For me, at least. I’ve always had a hard time finding the lines, shadows and highlights in people’s faces. And the symmetry, the goddamn symmetry… I don’t find faces as rational as the human body. There are so many differences in one person’s face compared to the next. But a body is and always will be a body. No one’s reeeaally gonna question if that nude body you drew was reeeaaally that celeb or that family member or that friend. But their face? There’s a lot that has to be perfect for a face to look like a face. And I don’t do perfect. But hey, honesty I do. So here’s me trying something new. I won’t tell you who it is, because it doesn’t really matter. Maybe you’ll figure it out when I’m done with her. I had to photo trace parts of her eyes though since they went to hell. Now the photo is just side-by-side again though. I think plants are more my vibe. But practice makes perfect, isn’t that so? /Angelimate
New stuff – minimalistic designs?
So, I’m treading lightly ahead with both my photography and my illustration. I never know exactly what to draw or take a photo of – but I always get something worthwhile in the end. I guess what I’m saying is: life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you’re gonna get. And art is the same, I suppose. The outcome is never foreseen. Anyhow, these are 2 small sketches I did late last night. They are both based on photos, one random one from Google and the bird one is based on a photo I took myself. Tell me what you think! They obviously need working on, they’re very simple. But like the deer, they’re simplistic/minimalistic in design which I believe there’s a market for. Tattoos, prints on shirts, mugs, bags? Who knows what the future holds? /Angelimate
It’s here, it’s here! MIDSOMMAR! Some people would argue that June 6th is Sweden’s National day, but I must insist we Swedes like THIS holiday much better. And trust me – it’s nothing like in the movie. (Or is it..?)
I have some future plans I’m excited to share with you soon, so hold on tight. By the way, I have a Pinterest. I post a lot of unique stuff that haven’t reached my Facebook page nor my website yet. Here’s the link: https://www.pinterest.se/angelimatebusiness/
Oh, and you did know I have a Facebook page, right? That’s the way you’ll reach me the quickest with your questions or business proposals. Here’s THAT link: https://www.facebook.com/Angelimate/
